Another Renovated Park

This is Grange Park which is found at the back of the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO) whose wonderful blue titanium wall and Frank Gehry stairs are visible above the trees. The 1.8 hectare park has just been reopened after being closed for 15 months for a $15 million renovation which included planting 80 new trees, a new fountain, newly designed playgrounds, off-leash dog area, new benches, lighting, and more to come. I'll show you a few more shots over the next few days including a pic of what is hidden behind those trees.

A pretty scene
I am glad you told me that was stairs, I would not have guessed.
Hope you are having a good week!

I bet people around there are happy to have this park open again. That Frank Gehry stairway is very interesting. The whole scene looks wonderful.

It is great when cities renovate their parks. Parks are an important urban asset and need all the help they can get. Great shot.

Hello, I like the modern look of the back of the gallery. The green space and park in the city is lovely sight. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day and the weekend ahead!

Interesting architecture!

We have a Gehry building as one of our museums on the Univ of MN campus. I love it and am amused by the remarks of some people who do not share my opinion. Some get so angry! I love the steps on your building.

Looks very nice indeed and titanium is one of Gehry's hallmarks. Blue is a new one for me.

A very attractive building and blue is a fine colour for it.

I am reading your posts in reverse order. I have already made a curmudgeonly comment about the Gehry staircase.
